UCP of NYC's School Age Program is operated out of our Brooklyn campus, and serves children and adolescents between the ages of five and 21 with severe physical disabilities, unique educational, therapeutic and medical needs.

Students in our School Age Program benefit from having an approved Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Teachers use IEPs to meet the customized learning needs of students while emphasizing academics, social and physical independence, quality of life skills and transition to adult services. UCP of NYC’s school environment offers barrier-free classroom settings with a focus on the following resources:

  • Specialized instruction
  • Computers and assistive technology
  • Augmentative communication
  • Adaptive positioning and handling
  • Adaptive physical education
  • Aquatic therapy and swimming activities

Funding is made possible by the New York State Education Department and the New York City Department of Education, and supplemented by donations to UCP of NYC. As a non-public school, eligibility for this program is determined by the New York City Department of Education.
